Oba Ewuare II said that since leaving office, Babangida’s astute leadership qualities have continued to reflect in the way he brings Nigerians together through his reach.

“You are still a strong pillar of Nigeria. You did your best in keeping the country as one during your years in government and you are still contributing to the integration and cohesion of the country,” the Oba told Babangida.

“Please don’t be tired because your priceless contributions and advice is still needed for this country to remain together as one,” he added.

Oba Ewuare II said that he was assured that with the likes of Babangida around, Nigeria would never disintegrate.

He further urged other patriotic Nigerians to emulate the former Nigerian leader’s virtues of thinking about Nigeria and her future at all times.
